A Season of Eden by Jennifer Laurens

32He's my teacher. I shouldn't be alone with him. But I can't help that he's irresistible.
I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me, and a taut quiet stretched between us. "I like hearing you play," I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn't say anything. I rested my clammy hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. "May I?" The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. "Eden." My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. "Is it okay?" I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. "Let me stay," I said. "Please." "You're going to get me in trouble," he said.

 

A Season of Eden left me totally breathless. I had been meaning to read it for awhile and what better time to read it than for the Teen Book Scene Tour?

This novel was everything I thought it would be and more. Eden was a captivating main character and you can’t help but fall in love with Mr. Christian. I read A Season of Eden in one sitting and it had me staying up until 2am because I wanted to finish it.

A Season of Eden has an air of anticipation in every page. As the reader, I felt like I shouldn’t be liking this story because it’s a student/teacher relationship and well, those are bad. I honestly couldn’t help but fall hopelessly in love with this story. I was rooting for Mr. Christian and Eden and their wildly unconventional relationship.

Though there isn’t anything dirty or graphic, the sexual tension between both characters is there and Jennifer Laurens did such an amazing job writing it. One of the things I liked about this novel was that the characters were aware and cautious of what they were doing. They knew that nothing could happen because of him being a teacher and her being a student.

I haven’t been able to get this book out of my mind since finishing it, and that it truly the sign of a good book. I can’t recommend it enough, and I can’t wait to read more books by Jennifer Laurens!

FTC- Received from author for a book tour.

You are the second person I've seen review this book, and both of you loved it. I read it and I... just didn't feel it. I don't know what it was about the book, but I felt a disconnect the whole time. And, Mr. Christian really actually bothered me. Especially at the end, with their big 'drama' moment. I thought he was way out of line and although what Eden said was said snidely, she was right... Sigh. Glad you loved it though!

Maybe I'll be able to work my thoughts out better when I actually get around to writing my review. :P

(Sorry for the long, rambling comment...! :P )
